Is there something about you, or a challenge that you have
faced, that makes where you are today more difficult?
My nose. I have a great, big nose. I am still very
self-conscious about it. When I walk in a room it is the first
thing I can see everyone look at.
What’s the best lesson you have learned from your father?
My father is very kind, and I don’t think I am anywhere near as
kind as he is, he is a really kind man, and if I could take
anything from him it would be that. I think kindness affects so
many parts of your life. You are drawn to people who are kind. The
more I grow up the more I have learned that I want to hang around
people who are kind, it makes you feel good.
What made you who you are today?
Absolutely, my nose. No, having two brothers. I am in the middle
and I have been bashed from both sides and I feel like that must
have done me some good. I am saying this on behalf of all middle
What do you want to do before you die?
Climb Everest. I would love to do it. I was obsessed with it
when I was younger, I used to have posters of it on my wall at
school. I used to read so many books on it. I was probably more
obsessed with the idea rather than the actual reality of climbing
it, but I still watch documentaries on it. If I could have a
realistic opportunity to climb it, I would love to. I would have to
take extra clothing for my nose.
What would be your first move in a zombie apocalypse?
I would like to think of a positive outcome to a zombie
apocalypse. It would be interesting to find a pretty zombie chick
who is not as wacky as the other ones, and see if you can breed and
make a hybrid zombie-human. I’d win her over with my nose and my
kindness. Truth be told, I’d probably run a fucking mile.
Who is your
Where in the world would you go to film a terrible movie?
A part of me would love to go to the North Pole, but I know that
once I was there it would be cold. Then I would go to the Amazon. I
was obsessed with lost cities when I was younger.
meal you would have every day in heaven?
Steak and chips, simple as that. A lovely fillet, with a bit of
Béarnaise on the side, bit of Dijon and a rocket-and-avocado salad.
Oysters to start and a glass of yummy red, a Château Latour or
Haut-Brion; banoffee pie for pudding.
What is the greatest piece of music ever created?
Oscar Peterson’s C Jam Blues
Who is the
most beautiful woman you’ve never met?
What are you up to now and are you happy?
I have just finished a play called Dangerous Liaisons at the
Donmar in London; now on to Kingsman 2. I am happy, actually, life
is good and I am very grateful.
